Recast - Mental Illness & Violence (feat. Gabe Howard)
I know, 'recast' may or may not be a real word. In the wake of the Parkland shooting, I've once again seen countless comments online & from public officials placing most of the blame on mental illness. In response, I thought it was important to rebroadcast our discussion with Gabe Howard from late 2017 where we discussed the link between violence and mental illness, if there is one, and how we can react well when people make comments like the ones above.
